Chiropractic Care More Effective Than Drugs for Neck and Shoulder Pain
It’s a lot of work for your neck to support your head, especially when you spend a lot of time sitting. Add natural wear and tear and chances are your neck hurts. One of the largest culprits is poor posture.
Jochen Chiropractic and Wellness in Beverly Hills offers quick, painless treatment plans. We have advanced diagnostic testing and utilize modern, less invasive techniques for quick recovery. Testing methods include neurological, joint, and disc, along with vascular testing to rule out any vascular disease.
The Benefits of Chiropractic for Neck and Shoulder Pain
This 2009 feasibility study noted that patients’ neck pain improved while under chiropractic care, and without any negative reactions to treatment. Patients reported reduced pain and better range of motion after being treated for various neck injuries.
This 2002 study evaluated how well chiropractic was able to treat neck pain. The majority of patients experienced reduced neck pain within six weeks. Patients experienced faster results when spinal manipulation was paired with heat therapy.
As for shoulder issues, this 2002 study on utilizing chiropractic methods to manage shoulder pain concluded that chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment. Patients experienced even better results when they performed home exercises as well.
And this 2012 study evaluated the impact of chiropractic care on frozen shoulder. Results showed that patients experienced anywhere between 50% to 100% improvement between both pain reduction and regaining range of motion.
